Ephesians 2

1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;

Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Not of works, lest any man should boast.

10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;

12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.

18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

  1. 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

    6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

    It is a voluntary exercise of love for which He is under no obligation. What constituted the glory of grace is that it is an utterly unfettered, unconstructed exercise of the love of God toward poor sinners.

    A.LM.A.S.

  2. 18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

    19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

    20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

  3. 14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

    We that are saved have Jesus as everything. The communication we have with Jesus as our advocate will fulfill all of our needs.

  4. Verses 19-22 MSG “That’s plain enough, isn’t it? You’re no longer wandering exiles. This kingdom of faith is now your home country. You’re no longer strangers or outsiders. You belong here, with as much right to the name Christian as anyone. God is building a home. He’s using us all—irrespective of how we got here—in what he is building. He used the apostles and prophets for the foundation. Now he’s using you, fitting you in brick by brick, stone by stone, with Christ Jesus as the cornerstone that holds all the parts together. We see it taking shape day after day—a holy temple built by God, all of us built into it, a temple in which God is quite at home.” Be a part of this grand construction of peace, unity and faith as the old Sunday School song says:

    Building up the temple,
    Building up the temple,
    Building up the temple of the Lord.

    Brother won’t you help me,
    Sister won’t you help me
    Building up the temple of the Lord.

  5. Ephesians 2:4-5
    [4]But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much,
    [5]that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!

    God loves us so much. When we are baptized in the name of Jesus our sins are washed away. Our past sins never come across God’s mind. He doesn’t hold them against us. Thank you for mercy and grace.

    Amazing grace how sweet the sound
    That saved a wretch like me
    I once was lost, but now I’m found
    Was blind but now I see

  6. 4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

    5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

    6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

    7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

    8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

    Amen!!
    Hallelujah!
    Thank You Jesus!

  7. 8. God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God.

    9. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.

    10. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. NLT

    We can’t take credit for God’s love or the change it makes in our life. While out in sin, we couldn’t do enough wrong that He didn’t still love us; nor can we do enough good to deserve His love or grace.

  8. Ephesians 2: 7-8 ( Salvation in Christ)
    That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
    (8) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is gift of God.
    The redemption in Christ is needed by all men and is revealed through men in their proclaiming of His redemption.
    The goal of redemption is to comprehend and appropriate in full blessings of Christ .
    I am a child of God, Nothing but the Blood of Jesus can wash us white as snow.
    Once you are Born- Again you have a new life in Christ.
    Thank you Jesus for the Holy Ghost!

  9. In those days you were living apart from Christ. You were excluded from citizenship among the people of Israel, and you did not know the covenant promises God had made to them. You lived in this world without God and without hope.
    Ephesians 2:12 NLT

    No matter how Long it is since or how far I come I never want to forget what I was saved from from. I never wanna let go of this salvation that brought me hope took me for a place of despair to where I am. I may forget how bad it was but I never wanted forget that it was bad enough and he so saved me that I’m going to continue being grateful for what he has done for me

  10. 8-9 NLT “God saved you by His grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.”
    ‭‭
    Salvation can not be earned. It is an undeserved gift of grace.

  11. For Christ himself has brought peace to us. He united Jews and Gentiles into one people when, in his own body on the cross, he broke down the wall of hostility that separated us. He did this by ending the system of law with its commandments and regulations. He made peace between Jews and Gentiles by creating in himself one new people from the two groups. Together as one body, Christ reconciled both groups to God by means of his death on the cross, and our hostility toward each other was put to death.”
    ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:14-16‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Spiritual birth must lead to spiritual growth as we become more like Jesus Christ. If we are maturing in Christ, we will show it by being able to speak the truth in love.

  12. 5 even when we were dead in sins hath quickened us
    together with Christ
    ( by grace ye are saved).

    —-
    hallelujah 🙌
    blessed be the name of the Lord.
    in the midst of a hopeless life, in the midst of fear
    surround by strongholds…
    He shew up, yes he came at His perfect time in my life
    doing the same thing as others, he came to me
    and gave Himself to me, the hope of glory.
    hallelujah
    thank you Jesus. thank you for mercy this day
    for it’s by grace, nothing that i had done
    i was lost, without hope. now you are the hope for me
    for this present and future thank you Jesus
    blessed be your name.
    i will bless the Lord at all times
    and his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

    th Lord is good, and his love endures forever

  13. GREATER
    UNITY

    13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
    14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

    The Born Again believer of the Apostolic Faith through:

    FAITH
    Repentance
    Baptism in JESUS Name
    Holy Ghost Filled
    Holiness Living

    We are in Christ JESUS through HIS Blood.

    He (JESUS) is our PEACE and has made us ONE with every fellow believer. As Apostolic believers we should live as is commanded the Ephesians here. As ONE in Christ JESUS. There is no room for divisions, contentions or any such in the Church, the BODY of Christ.

    18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
    19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
    20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
    21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
    22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

    The Holy Spirit of GOD desires to keep us as ONE in HIM as HE leads us to Heavenly places. JESUS let our words and actions promote UNITY in the Church.

  14. I love POFW live Jesus give Jesus 2 Greater!18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. The blood applied made us free! Walking daily with God is true peace!

  15. Ephesians 2:1-5
    1) AND you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
    2) Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
    3) Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
    4) But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
    5) Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

    At one time, we were DEAD in our trespasses and sins. We walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air – the devil, and we fulfilled the desires of our flesh and mind.
    BUT GOD!!…
    But because GOD is RICH In MERCY and for His GREAT LOVE for us, when we REPENTED – He forgave us, when we were Baptized in JESUS name – He washed our sins away, and when He filled us with the HOLY GHOST – He QUICKENED Us – He Revived Us – He Resuscitated Us – He Made Us Alive in Christ.
    When we were DEAD – He brought us Back To Life!! HALLELUJAH!!
    ALL BECAUSE OF HIS MERCY, LOVE, and GRACE!!
    Thank You JESUS!!
    I CAN”T STOP PRAISING YOUR NAME – JESUS!!

  16. The Living Bible
    vs. 9-10
    Salvation is not a reward for the good we have done, so none of us can take any credit for it.
    It is God himself who has made us what we are and given us new lives from Christ Jesus; and long ages ago he planned that we should spend these lives in helping others.

    Good works cannot contribute in any way to our salvation, but are an expected product of salvation. Paul makes it clear that God created us in Christ Jesus — that is, gave us our new life — in order that we would be able to, and would do, good works. What are “good works”? Any activity which is beneficial to God or our fellowman, and whose beauty reflects honor and glory to the Lord.

  17. V.8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

    Thank you Jesus for the gift🙌🏼🙏🏼❤️

  18. ‘Together, we are his house, built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets. And the cornerstone is Christ Jesus himself. We are carefully joined together in him, becoming a holy temple for the Lord. Through him you Gentiles are also being made part of this dwelling where God lives by his Spirit.’

    Ephesians 2:20-22
    Jesus should be your cornerstone
    When you put Jesus first it doesnt matter how YOU feel youre gonna do what’s best for the kingdom of Gods sake. Each of us were called out of darkness and into his marvelous light. Lets seek ye first the kingdom today in all that we do.

  19. God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
    Ephesians 2:8‭-‬10 NLT

    God has been so good, from even before we knew Him. Follow His will and fulfill the masterpiece He created through You!

  20. 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
    6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
    7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

    I’m so thankful today that he looked past my sins and made a way to bring me into his kingdom. Where would I be without him?

  21. “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”
    ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:10‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    We are destined to live a victorious life in Jesus Christ!
    Why do we continue to live a life of defeat? Remember that Our GOD is not the author of confusion. One must have the mind of Christ, even when we fall. We are not perfect beings. But we do have a GOD of Mercy and GRACE that allows us to repent and come back to Him.

    “But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭64:8‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  22. The Kingdom of Heaven is GREATER
    For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility 15 by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace

    This is how the Gentiles get into the same Kingdom as the Jews! We are grafted in but the good news is we are not grafted into the old, but the new. The new is without the laws and regulations of the old. BOOM

  23. 19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

    20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

    21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

    They say it takes a village to raise a child, and we have seen evidence of that among our families. Each helping others when needed to assist families in running smoothly. The same is in the Kingdom of God. We all can’t be the pastor, or the singer, or the musician, or the greeter etc. Yet we all have different giftings and talents, that when put together, we make POFW a Greater place.

    Let’s put to use what God has given us, so that a handful of people does not carry the entire load. Let’s all work together and share the work of the Kingdom, each fitly joined together.

  24. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
    NLT is clearer
    10. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
    *****************
    When we start to feel that we do not count or that we are worthless, useless, unimportant; we have to remember that God created us, we are His masterpiece. He does not consider us less than anyone else for He loved us so much that He sacrifice Himself on the cross just for you and me. If you (or I) were the only person with sin He woulda done it anyways. 🎁 His gift to us.
    With His love He created us to have a relationship with Him and to serve Him. We’re not just here to live day to day just surviving. No, our life is to enrich our fellow neighbors, family, friends or strangers. To spread the good news that they too can have a relationship with the creator of the world. Too many years have gone by for me not understanding this. Just making ends meet and hoping for a better future. It took meeting Jesus and ❤falling in love❤ with Him that changed me and my outlook on what a real life is all about. The only life for me is knowing and living for Jesus so that my future is forever in heaven with Him. 🙏

  25. 4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

    5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

    6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

    We were dead in sins. Satan controlled us, we were influenced by the wicked one. Christ died for us. We couldn’t save ourselves. It was grace that saved us. Even though we are not saved by our works, we still do works.

    10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

  26. 7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
    8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

    God is merciful and gracious he will always forgive us of our evil doings and because of this we should have faith and believe at anytime God can do anything that we need him to do and we should sow into his kingdom

  27. 1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;

    2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

    3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

    4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

    5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;

    Thank God that he brought me out of the miry clay, even though I had given up on him at times in my life, he never has failed me one time. Thank you for your grace and mercy Jesus!

  28. Ephesians 2
    1 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. 3 All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of the flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions,
    It is by grace you have been saved.

    God loves us so much, through his great love, even though not deserving, we have been saved through Jesus Christ with his blood.
    Thank you Jesus for this day.

  29. And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

    17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.

    18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

    19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

  30. But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

    5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

    6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

    But God who is rich in mercy. Where would we be if it wasn’t for the love of Jesus. If it wasn’t for his mercies that are fresh and new each morning. Thanks be to the Lord our God.

  31. 4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

    5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

    He loves us so much that even when we hurt Him with our sins He still says “I forgive you”.

  32. 1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
    2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
    3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
    4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
    5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
    6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
    7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
    8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
    9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
    10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

    HALELUJAH!!! That be me!!! GOD CAME AND FOUND ME, NOT I HIM!!! HALELUJAH!!! My JESUS IS ALL I NEED!!! THANK YOU DADDY!!!

  33. “Now all of us can come to the Father through the same Holy Spirit because of what Christ has done for us.”
    ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:18‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    So glad we can all unite as one body and talk to the father just through our heavenly language. We don’t have to do anything special all we have to do is open our mouths and began to speak in tongues.

  34. “We are carefully joined together in him, becoming a holy temple for the Lord.”
    ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:21‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Know ye not that your body is the Temple of the Holy Ghost? It’s important both of what/ who we connect to and what we consume. Without our body – we have no ministry, so it’s important we do constant upkeep
